No. You need it in the run library path, not just the link library path.
So you could put

-L/opt/lang/gcc-g77-3.3.2/lib -R/opt/lang/gcc-g77-3.3.2/lib

Look in m4/R.m4 or aclocal.m4.

We have no idea where you installed g77, but that is not a standard place
on (Sparc-)Solaris, BTW, so I think it's a `feature' of your system.
But not even /usr/local/lib (the usual place for an install of gcc from
sources) is in the standard Solaris path AFAIR.
